A Novel Idea: 06/28/2016

As a writer, keeping inspiration going from week to week can be tough. We want to change that. The point of A Novel Idea is to get your writing juices flowing even when you don’t feel like writing. We also want it to help you dig deeper into what writing looks like for you and let you share it with the world. We’ll be posting installments weekly, all focused on four things: characters, your novel, you writing process, and writing prompts. Follow the weekly guidelines and post it on your blog, then link up with us! We’d love to hear from you each week.


This week, we want to challenge you to write a scene about the following photo. Anything goes, as long as it relates to the picture in some way. Let your imagination run wild–we can’t wait to see what you come up with!


Two people, only their hands visible, sit at a table drinking wine and having a conversation.

    Can I find a picture with two people drinking coffee? No offense, but my characters don’t like wine. 😉

    • Ashley

      It’s open to interpretation, so yes.
